New Tor Browser Bundles for Mac OS X
We recently switched our build machine to Lion (OS X 10.7) which had some unintended effects on the Firefox/TorBrowser build. After consulting with Mozilla developers, Sebastian Hahn was able to nail down the problem and provide a fix. The Mac OS X Tor Browser Bundles have been updated so they should stop crashing for everyone now. Thanks for your patience!
Tor Browser Bundle (2.2.35-10)
- Make TorBrowser stop crashing on random websites by building with clang instead of llvm-gcc. (closes: #5697)
That said, I for one disallow global scripts because I don't like ads and other junk on web pages; and for obscure/new JS attacks TBB can't prevent/mitigate. However, for non-English speakers and non-tech computer users, there would much confusion if TBB shipped NoScript to block all scripts, and the users may then decide "Tor's broken", and not try to figure out what's going on...and recent comments by Andrew wrt to his unofficial user testing recently bears out that point.
Much better to use a separate browser for non-Tor browsing rather than mixing them up. Not as smooth perhaps but it does lessen the risk of users who are non-technical doing something wrong. And security trumps smooth in any security solution.
